The cool thing about Kate MacGwire is that she uses feathers to create her art. Thousands of feathers combined to create soft sculptures and flowing installations! This is how her work is described on her web site:
"Kate MccGwire's practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent 'otherness' to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold
between the parameters that define everyday reality."
To me, this looks like a caged animal, just waiting to be released...
